Tribute Show (an Upstreet Productions production)
Back around 1990, the Pyralisk Art Center in Montpelier, VT. asked me to help put together a Woody Guthrie Birthday Concert, with a bunch of local musicians singing Woody's songs. The next year, I went a step further, and added narration from Woody's writings. The year after that I added slides, first on one screen, then on two--photos of Woody, of migrant workers, and other images that helped tell Woody's story. That show--with a flexible cast of musicians and shifting narrative structure--became a central Vermont tradition. We also presented it at a local high school and at Goddard College. Then, in 1997, for no particular reason, it went on hiatus......until now, when we're ready to take it, fittingly, on the road.
